Offering support to our charity

Our charity is small yet it works with it's feet firmly on the ground tirelessly, covering 17hrs a day, 7 days a week.

We are dedicated to support Owls in the wild through endless conservation work whilst we also offer care & support at our sanctuary to over 50 unwanted or abused captive bred Owls & Birds of Prey. Through no fault of their own, our birds are handed in after being passed around as pets, many arrive after being mistreated or badly handled, sadly this is a situation that is increasing year after year due to a relentless & expanding commercial Pet trade of Owls & Birds of Prey.
Below is a brief summary of what we do & how people support us, with every day that passes & with costs always increasing, support is paramount & it needs to be ongoing so we can thrive to be there for the birds & for those who need our help.

How we are funded: Our finances are received from fees given by visitors who book into experiences & from those who kindly sponsor our birds. We also receive funds through nest box work & by kind donations pledged. External fundraising events & donations are a huge support too but in the world of credit cards, this can be very hard because many supporters carry credit cards, not cash or coins. With regards to receiving legacies or gifts in-kind in memory of someone or a loved one, this is rare for us, mainly because we don't like asking, & also because we think it's intrusive to ask when families who loose someone close. For us to receive a legacy or a gift in-kind, it would be a real life changer for everything we do as a feet on the ground charity.
Sanctuary & Workforce: Manual help is always greatly appreciated, all help provided comes in different ways especially as we progress to build a special kind of Centre for which is dedicate to support birds & wildlife. Facilities are always improving to include more bird aviaries, welfare areas for the birds, indoor & outdoor flying & training areas for our birds, which are important areas where we work to educate all ages of the community, this involves working with children, families, schools & groups. Education plays a key part of our work & for us, children are a very important generation of new conservationists who need to be encouraged to offer future support for Owls & Birds of Prey.
Conservation: To date we have now over 5,500 Owl nest boxes positioned UK wide to support landowners who work with us to support nesting Barn Owls, Tawny Owls, Little Owls & Kestrels. Without the support & involvement from landowners, conservation efforts would not be possible! With this number of Owl boxes & more planned to be positioned yearly, the support needed must be ongoing. Any donation supporting this work is also vital to us.
Wild Rescues: With regards to wild rescued birds & their rehabilitation, this is always an ongoing task & very precious to us. The results we gain in getting injured or sick birds back to the wild is always difficult depending on the injuries sustained, in all our results are very good. To assist this work we build a number of special mobile release aviaries & erect them at selected project sites, this supports a safe & successful release scheme.

When kindly donating to our charity you can be assured that a large percentage if not all will be used to support the Centre's in-house work including the external conservation work we undertake & the care/assistance we give to wild & captive bred casualties that are brought in or picked up.
